Evergreen Haus - Yosemite / Sierra - Mountain Cabin Lodging
COVID-19 Policy Notification

At Evergreen Haus, we are continuously monitoring the development of COVID-19. Our number one priority is the well-being, health, and safely of our guests and ourselves. Therefore, we are following our California state & local Madera county health department's guidance per the CDC guidelines with regards to our operations here at the cabin lodge that are impacted by this unprecedented global pandemic.

Now that California has moved from phase 2 to phase 3, short-term rentals in Madera County have been authorized to finally reopen, but with strict new hotel / motel guidelines / restrictions. Now that our cabin lodge is reopen and operating within this COVID-19 'new normal', our guests' safety is our main priority and we are taking every precaution in order to ensure that. We have set-up new COVID-19 plans, procedures, and routines in place, to keep all of our guests safe and healthy during their stays at our cabin lodge. We would like to share the following information with you.

Changes to our business because of COVID-19:
1. The following amenities will be temporarily closed / unavailable for our guest' use during their stays: All interior shared common areas ( & coinciding services typically available inside of them) - Great room, full kitchen, ( no more free breakfast items / drinks available for guests to help themselves to either, until these restrictions are lifted ), laundry room, & outdoor propane BBQ grill.
2. We have removed non-essential items from our cabin rooms that cannot be sanitized properly (i.e. - decorative pillows, magazines, books, etc.). Only items that can be sanitized properly between uses have been left (i.e. - cabin room info binder with plastic cover, coffee cups, etc). Free coffee, creamers, sugar / sweetener packs will still be included to be used with the individual coffee makers in each cabin room. Mini-frig's are also still included for guest use in each cabin room.
3. Cabin room turn downs will not be performed during guests stays while present, only in between guests stays. Let us know if trash is needed to be removed from cabin rooms.
4. If you encounter a maintenance issue, we will evaluate if an essential service is needed immediately before we assist. Any cabin room maintenance will not be performed when guests are present. If it is not essential, any will be addressed after guests' check-outs.

What we do at our cabin lodge for securing the safety of our guests:
We follow the requirements of state & local county health agencies per CDC guidelines.
Increased cleaning and hygiene protocols.
